Christian County restaurant inspections

CHRISTIAN COUNTY RESTAURANTS undergo regular inspections by the Christian County Health Department in order to maintain their permits to operate.

Restaurant inspection scores are provided to the public by the Christian County Health Department as part of its ongoing inspection program.

Rating scores are assigned to inspections based on a scale of 1-100. Health violations generally require immediate action to correct an issue with employee protocols or to make repairs or equipment replacements. If a restaurant or food service business is given a score of 89 or lower by the health department inspector, it is the Headliner News’ practice to describe the violations listed in the inspection report.

If a restaurant inspection is listed with “no score,” it means that the inspection was a revisit or a pre-open inspection conducted as a follow-up to a previous inspection.

The inspections listed below are considered routine inspections by the Christian County Health Department, unless otherwise noted.
